Crossfit Wachusett DUALS!!

February 4, 2012

Talk about FAMILY!! Today was an amazing day for CrossFit Wachusett!! We had a gathering at the gym for all the members and for a little healthy competition we had a dual competition!! There were 17 members at the gym and it was fantastic to have M back for the weekend to join in the fun!! The main goal was to get the people who see each others names on the board together to meet and get to know one another. What a great time!

There were a few masterminds behind the WOD's and there were three all together. These were not "hard" WODs, just some fun things that everyone was able to do with pretty much the same level of difficulty. Before each WOD we all picked numbers and your number matched your partners. This allowed things to be mixed up for each of the three.

Here is a pic of the first heat of the first WOD!! It was so much fun.



All three WODs were a ton of fun and we had a great day with some really amazing people. I really enjoyed he whole experience.

Hubs and I decided to go to the gym a little early. We both felt as if there were some things we wanted to work on before the Duals began. I spent a good 30 minutes working on my double unders. They are coming along... still really frustrated, but I think I know what I am doing wrong so its more a timing issue than anything else. Pretty sure I have the right length rope and all that jazz... practice, practice, practice!!

After some extreme frustration it was time for something I love to do. I chose to do skills on Thursday and missed my all time favorite exercise for strength. What better time than at that moment to get my deadlifts in!! I felt great, I was able to get in 5 sets of 3... and best of all the final set of 3 was my 1RM weight!! Hello PR!!

All in all Saturday was a great day!! Lots of fun and lots of smiles!!
